Part of the Empowering Professionals in Aging series. Presented by Home Instead, an Honor Company.
As we age, there are important legal documents we should all have in place. This is particularly true for older adults. However, people often wait until a crisis to make legal decisions, which for some may be too late. While planning ahead for a person’s legal needs is ideal, it can be challenging to understand which legal documents are needed and where to begin. Join this webinar to learn more about the legal needs of aging and the importance of proactive planning.
Participants in this webinar will be able to:
- Understand the importance of planning so a person’s wishes are fulfilled
- Identify which documents are important to have in place
- Clarify the purpose of Medicaid planning
- Learn the benefits of using an elder law attorney and other helpful legal resources
